Bush recorded six tackles in 13 games during his second NFL season.
Bush saw significant time at safety as a rookie in 2016, but with the Bears having drafted Eddie Jackson, he saw just 86 snaps this year. He'll enter the third year of a four-year contract, but unless the depth chart has some changes, he'll likely see most of his work on special teams.
Bush sat out Sunday's loss to the 49ers after not participating at practice Friday, but appears fully healthy this week. The 24-year-old could potentially have a larger role in Sunday's game against the Bengals with fellow safeties Adrian Amos (hamstring) and Deandre Houston-Carson (ankle) still nursing injuries.
Bush (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the 49ers.
Bush joins fellow safeties Adrian Amos (hamstring) and Deandre Houston-Carson (ankle) on the inactives list, leaving Chicago short-handed in the secondary for Week 13.
Bush (ankle) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Bush will play a high defensive snap count if he can play Sunday, since Adrian Amos (hamstring) is doubtful. The second-year pro played six games as a full-time safety last season, accruing 20 tackles (15 solo) and one pass breakup, so even if he does play, Bush carries a low ceiling.
